Based on available information, the attitudes within the Legion do not seem to be improving. It would help if the reform process were more open. From the outside, the Legion does not look much different than it did in 2009. The cloud of secrecy tends to make people fear the worst and some disturbing questions and possibilities have been put forward recently.
There is a sense that the Church is dealing with some heavy duty spiritual warfare involving deliberate cooperation with dark spiritual forces. A possible explanation for why this has been such an uphill battle for the Vatican hierarchy to deal with has been put forward and although ReGAIN does not necessarily agree with the suggestion, there is adequate circumstantial evidence to consider it as a reasonable possibility. We recognize that there are many other possible explanations but we hope to raise some awareness of the serious spiritual issues involved and provoke some questions and discussions to encourage the Vatican to bring in enough resources to overcome any forces of evil involved.
Cults rob people of their individuality, personality and uniqueness and replace it with the cult
Self, which implants a cult personality in place of the person’s real self.
Cult groups exist because unscrupulous people are willing to manipulate others using unethical methods including mind control in attempts to satisfy insatiable lust for power, money and sex. Such people do not care about the damaging effects on those whom they use. In extreme cases the damage may go far beyond the emotional and psychological realms.
There is a level of evil involved in using mind control to manipulate people and to remove their God given gift of free will and of course to attempt to replace a person’s God given personality with one that closer resembles that of the group leader. When a cult leader gives himself completely over to evil to the point of becoming a servant of Satan there are signs and consequences. One sign of a person giving himself over completely to evil for a Roman Catholic would be that he would be repulsed by religious objects and would refuse the sacraments even when he was dying. The main ultimate consequence of course would be eternal damnation.
According to the only account that was made public following the death of the Legion and Regnum Christi founder, Father Marcial Maciel Degollado displayed some disturbing signs during the latter days of his life. Reportedly, he no longer said his daily masses; he was repulsed by religious objects and he was said to have refused to receive the sacraments offered to him. Only those who were close to him in his final moments know for sure whether he made a last minute decision to repent. In an article written by Jason Berry Click Here Father Maciel reportedly refused to make a confession when he was near death and an exorcist was summoned. Although this information has not been verified by those who were actually present with him in his final hours, the account described by Jason Berry has not been publicly denied by the Legion leaders and they have not provided details that contradict the story that has circulated. Jason Berry included the following statement in his report:
After the priests got Maciel to a Legion house in Jacksonville, Fla., he reportedly grew belligerent when Corcuero tried to anoint him, yelling,
I said no! The article says Maciel refused to make a final confession, and states flatly that he “did not believe in God’s pardon.”
Assuming the above details are true, a logical question arises:
What was the state of his soul especially during the last year or two of his life and where would the spirit of this controversial man be after the time of his death? According to available information about the founder’s life after the Vatican sentenced him to live a life of prayer and repentance, in spite of the considerable evidence to the contrary he continued to claim for some time that he was innocent and that he had been falsely condemned (by the Vatican) and he did not show signs of being repentant or acknowledge or make public apologies to his victims. Although we cannot judge Father Maciel, it would be reasonable for a person to conclude that the Legionary founder, unlike typical founders of religious orders is quite possibly with the demons in Hell.
If that is the case, what would be the consequences for those persons who formally committed themselves to integrate their minds and spirits with a person who had given themselves completely over to evil and possibly become a servant of Satan? Would that open up doors and allow legal entry of evil spirits into those who have idolized such a person and even chose him as a role model and actually did make or even agree to make such an integration of their minds and spirits with his? If the good spirits of the saints are able to have a positive influence on our spirits while we are on earth, is it possible for the evil spirit of a person in Hell to have a negative influence on those who made vows or solemn promises to follow him?
One sign of this would be serious emotional problems. If for example a person were to have a demon take up residence inside he or she could display this through a multiple personality disorder. His or her good personality would be in charge at times and he or she would at most times appear to be normal. At other times, when the demon inside
took control the person would be seen as having an alternate evil personality.
The following information is available on the internet and came from declassification of documents under the Freedom of Information Act.
During World War 2, the Nazis, under Adolph Hitler initiated a Project Monarch, or MKUltra that is based on mind control experiments that started in the 1940’s by German psychiatrists and scientists to be able to have a greater degree of control over people by utilizing a deeper level of brainwashing.
Some of the German scientists were brought over to the USA during the beginnings of the CIA and experiments continued. The CIA in the 1950’s wanted to discover means of conditioning people to avoid unauthorized extraction of information from them (in case they were captured by enemy forces. The CIA also wanted to be able to control people (e.g. enemy soldiers) by applying special interrogation techniques. They were investigating ways of memory enhancement for their own people and ways to prevent hostile control of their own personnel.
They investigated various ways including radiation, electric shock, psychology, psychiatry, sociology, anthropology, graphology, harassment substances, paramilitary devices and chemicals such as LSD.
There were also investigations into using the power of occult forces. Project Monarch (like the butterfly that is transformed) sought to compartmentalize the mind into multiple personalities and utilized a satanic ritual including Cabalistic mysticism to attach a particular demon to the second personality (alter).
The above process sets up a
programmer – slave? relationship. The slaves thus created are useful to the programmers, who have no scruples. Each of the victims of such reprogramming ends up having a
good? personality (the original) and a
bad? personality. The bad personality comes from the evil spirit (demon) who takes up residence in the host person. The host person’s original personality remains much the same as previous but shares the host’s body and at times comes to the forefront without control of the host. The programmer has ways of bringing the bad
alter out when there is something the programmer wants it to do something for him. This serves as an ideal way of infiltrating a group and carrying out an ulterior agenda.
LEVELS OF PROGRAMMING
There are five levels of programming utilized including Alpha, Beta, Delta, Theta and Omega.
The Alpha programming is
ALPHA. Regarded as
general or regular programming within the base control personality; characterized by extremely pronounced memory retention, along with substantially increased physical strength and visual acuity. Alpha programming is accomplished through deliberately subdividing the victims personality which, in essence, causes a left brain-right brain division, allowing for a programmed union of L and R through neuron pathway stimulation.
BETA. Referred to as sexual programming. This programming eliminates all learned moral convictions and stimulates the primitive sexual instinct, devoid of inhibitions.
Catalters may come out at this level.
DELTA. This is known as “killer” programming, originally developed for training special agents or elite soldiers (i.e. Delta Force, First Earth Battalion, Mossad, etc.) in covert operations. Optimal adrenal output and controlled aggression is evident. Subjects are devoid of fear; very systematic in carrying out their assignment. Self-destruct or suicide instructions are layered in at this level.
THETA considered to the “psychic” programming. Bloodliners (those coming from multi-generational Satanic families) were determined to exhibit a greater propensity for having telepathic abilities than did non-bloodliners. Due to its evident limitations, however, various forms of electronic mind control systems were developed and introduced, namely, bio-medical human telemetry devices (brain implants), directed-energy lasers using microwaves and/or electromagnetics. It is reported these are used in conjunction with highly-advanced computers and sophisticated satellite tracking systems.
self-destruct form of programming, also known as
Code Green. The corresponding behaviors include suicidal tendencies and/or self-mutilation. This program is generally activated when the victim/survivor begins therapy or interrogation and too much memory is being recovered.
GAMMA. Another form of system protection is through “deception” programming, which elicits misinformation and misdirection. This level is intertwined with demonology and tends to regenerate itself at a later time if inappropriately deactivated.
In another article written in 2005 by Jason Berry, Click Hereone of the complainants (Father Maciel’s original sexual abuse victims) in the Vatican suit, said that Maciel
admired Hitler as a military man. He admired Francisco Franco. He told us to salute each other, saying
Is there a possibility that Father Marcial Maciel would have used such an extreme form of mind control on his followers to get them to follow his bidding? If, as reported above, Adolph Hitler was in some way a role model for the founder and if he had completely given himself over to evil and been willing to serve Satan then anything would be possible and such a possibility merits consideration because of the terrifying possibilities.
We do not profess to be experts in this field and we are not claiming that the above controversial information necessarily applies to those who accepted the Legionary founder as a role model and integrated their minds and spirits with his or that anyone in the Legion or Regnum Christi has used extreme mind control techniques. Based on information available from cult and mind control experts, we have offered opinions about the Legion and Regnum Christi concluding that the founder and other leaders have employed conventional mind control techniques as used by typical cult groups to control their behaviour, information, thoughts and emotions. Various articles and testimonies on this site have confirmed that former members have experienced varying degrees of emotional problems that can affect them for years and in some cases even for life.
The Vatican communique, issued May 1, 2010 Click Here did identify some things about the Legionary founder as follows:
The very grave and objectively immoral actions of Father Maciel, confirmed by incontrovertible testimonies, in some cases constitute real crimes and manifest a life devoid of scruples and authentic religious meaning.
Regarding the more extreme forms of mind control that have been available since the time of Adolph Hitler, we can only offer circumstantial evidence that it is a reasonable possibility for those affected (and those who care about them) to consider.
We suggest that people who did commit themselves in any way to
integrate? their lives and spirits with Father Maciel would be well advised to seek out a knowledgeable spiritual director who is experienced in dealing with evil spirits and deliverance prayers, possibly exorcism and secondly with qualified trained and experienced psychological counselors if they wish to find spiritual and emotional healing.
There is a prayer of renouncement entitled
Renouncing the Tie For Good provided on Life-After-RC at Click Here that is suggested for those people who leave the Legion or Regnum Christi. It is a
deliverance prayer, intended to bring spiritual healing to a person who has been exposed to evil influence.
The suggested prayer is likely to be somewhat helpful in some cases but when dealing with evil spirits, spiritual healing and deliverance usually require a stronger form of intervention by qualified experienced individuals. God’s power is stronger than that of any demon but the demons are fallen angels and have powers much stronger than our own human capabilities and they are not to be trifled with. The first step in obtaining spiritual healing and deliverance is to recognize that there may be a serious problem that needs to be dealt with by people qualified and experienced in deliverance prayers. There are experienced Roman Catholic groups and individuals such as Francis and Judith McNutt at Christian Healing Ministries in Jacksonville Florida and they offer training in the field of deliverance prayers.
Exit counseling by qualified psychological experts familiar with mind control is also essential to encourage healing for emotional and psychological damage cause by destructive cult groups.
Those whose lives have been negatively affected by association with the Legion or Regnum Christi or with Father Maciel have a right to question Church authorities about the above issues and to insist that they recognize the enormity of what they are dealing with and commit enough resources to bring true justice and reform.
